Dry & mild today, wet this weekend

Friday, February 22nd (4:50 AM)

It will be another dry day across most of Northern California and with weaker winds not only will it feel warmer but daytime highs are expected to be a few degrees higher as well.

The chances for rain returns Saturday, however, most of it will be on the coast and inland areas while the valley will have to wait until the evening to overnight hours. There will also be snow down to around 2,000 feet but will be on the light side.

A weak atmospheric river is beginning to take shape over the Pacific and is expected to move over Northern California on Sunday and stick around at least through Tuesday if not into the middle of next week.

As the subtropical moisture moves in we will see snow levels rise well above pass levels and will not only bring heavy rain to the coast but also in the mountains. This will bring with it the potential for flooding as the rain melts the higher elevation snow.

As of right now there are no flood watches or warnings but that will most likely change in the next 24 to 36 hours. Stay tuned...
